this is going to be our wake-up call and right now in new york city, the debate is over how much to increase fares in public transit and they -- the metrotransity authority wants to increase the price of riding a subway and the price of riding trains quite a bit, and so how does this make sense? we're supposedly having a wake-up call and we're making it harder for people to use public transit and that's because we don't have the resources that we need. >> you've been out on the devastation, why? >> i'm writing a book and the documentary to go with it and we were filming in the rockaways in staten island and in red hook, and also in the relief hubs where you just see a tremendous number of volunteers organized by occupy wall street. they call it occupy sandy. >> really? >> what i found is that the generosity is tremendous. i saw a friend last night and i asked her whether she'd been involved in the hurricane relief. they have my car, i hope they get it back. if you see it, tell me. people are tremendous. so one of the things that you find out in a disaster is you really do need a public secto

. it's unclear if anyone died in the apparent israeli air strike that you see in gaza city, but the casualty count now stands at 142 palestinians dead, 1,180 wounded. >> the number of dead and wounded also rising in israel. hospital officials now say 24 people were wounded in this morning's bus bombing in tel aviv. no one was killed, though, but since the conflict with hamas began, five israelis have been killed. more than 70 wounded. witnesses say they saw a man throw the bag into the bus, and run away, and it blew up. official from both sides at this time yesterday, they actually believe that a cease-fire between israel and hamas was close, but diplomats today, they are furiously trying to get peace talks back on track, but there is still a lot of shock. there's action newsing other the streets of tel aviv. want to go there live to talk to sarah seidner. give us the latest of this bus bomb that went off, and what is the reaction, the response to people there about the possibility of this violence ending. >> well, you know, if you talk to people on the streets who have act

on a mission to annihilate all competition with the ads. it was dresden, just bomb the hell out of the city. newt gingrich was the biggest threat. they destroyed him. let's watch. here's a romney supporting ad destroying newt. >> you know what makes barack obama happy? newt gingrich's baggage. newt has more baggage than the airlines. freddie mac helped cause the economic collapse, but gingrich cashed in. freddie mac paid newt $30,000 an hour. $1.6 million. gingrich not only teamed up with nancy pelosi on global warming, but together they co-sponsored a bill that gave $60 million a year to a u.n. program supporting china's brutal one-child policy. >> you know there's been a lot of discussion in my head whether ads work in primary elections. people have made up their mind, no ad's going to change their mind. >> primaries -- yeah, in primaries, they are deadly, particularly in republican primaries. and that ad in particular for newt gingrich was devastating because it hit -- it was the kitchen sink. it threw it all in there. >> what did it say about him that they didn't like? >> it said that,
destabilized last year, aq ap took control of several key cities in the south of yemen. in the months since, their advances have been largely reversed through a renewed and even more effective partnership with yemen's new government. our work in yemen is far from done. dismantling them, eliminating it as a threat to the united states will ultimately require sustained pressure, more u.s. training and assistance, close partnership with the government and people of yemen and political support for transition. another country we have made good progress is somalia. for years -- when i became director of the c.i.a., it was obvious that somalia was a failed state. the failed state where the militant group controlled large pieces of territory. declared allegiance to al qaeda and brought about a humanitarian crisis and planned attacks in the region. but there, too, we have seen significant progress. in large part because of an effective partnership between the united states and the african union mission in somalia. the result of these efforts is an al shabaab that has lost 50% of the territory it hel
the city ever faced, governor christy said the damage in new jersey was unthinkable, we had fires and hurricane force winds and massive flooding and feet of snow. if you look at that and look at the flooding to the subway systems and the shut down of the stock exchanges, you get a sense of the mass of scale and sense of scope of this storm yet networks performed. for many consumers their only link to information was through their smart phone, linking social media and their smart phone. while there was an impact on cell sites i think the networks performed well. >> my asays sment some networks did well, some did less well. there are no reporting requirements on these networks, there are no standards by which we measure their performance and it's voluntary whether they want to talk to their state and local governments or not. so i take their word for it that they responded well. i also have anecdotely heard that some of these guys did less well and i think the first step is find out who did well and who didn't well and how we make sure everybody does well. >> the impact of hurricane
. when the police came they were still sitting on him. thereover 100 u.s. cities saw strikes in different wal-marts throughout the country largest strike ever against walmart. i want to give a local report about that as well. let's look. >> it was a walmart employees considering to join the protest they said they could be fired if they did. they told us that their benefits and their hours have been cut. a big concern protesters point out they say workers are threatened if they appear to be forming an union. >> they have been harassing people for years who even think about organizing. >> cenk: well now, let's talk about why they might want to strike and what they're upset about. their average pay. you know what it is, $8.81 an hour. that's about $15,000 a year. that's poverty level for a household of two. when you're paying people at the poverty level it's not surprising that at some point they might say you know what, that's not a lot and that presents a lot of problems for our families. now here is what is interesting. this presents problems for the american tax payers. they earn 31% les
a lot of votes in big city democratic districts. 99% of the vote. >> i want to say something very important about abortion. most women who have abortions are mothers. it's sadly a kitchen table issue. a lot of women are making the choice because they can't afford to bring another child into the world. it's a tough choice, but there's nobody better able to make that decision. our public policy has to be pro-choice because there's nobody else that can make that decision besides the woman and the people she trusts. otherwise, you are making her a criminal, the doctors criminals. it's just untenable. we're not going back to the world where we used to live where -- >> i think, joan, here is something you would agree with, and i think the congressman won't agree with. this is the exact words john mccain used yesterday. i don't think anybody like me, meaning a male of a certain age, i can state my position on abortion, but to -- other than that, leave the issue alone. in other words, he doesn't want to be heard on the issue really in terms of any debate over the platform. he basically th
and its aftermath. it has been a very challenging time for new york city. i think you have shown quite a bit of fortitude in coming back and getting back to business. my remarks today are going to focus on the reasons for the disappointingly slow pace of economic recovery in the united states, and the policy actions that have been taken by the federal open market committee to support the economy. in addition, i will discuss important economic challenges our country faces as we close out 2012 and move into 2013, in particular the challenge of putting federal government finances on a sustainable path and the longer run while avoiding actions that would endanger the economic recovery in the near term. the economy is continuing to recover from the financial crisis and recession, but the pace of the recovery has been slower than fomc participants and others had hoped or anticipated when i spoke here last, three years ago. indeed, since the recession trough in 2009, growth in real gdp has averaged only a little more than 2% per year. similarly, the job market has improved over the past three
inside gaza on israeli cities and towns must end and a broader calm restored. >> with her time as secretary of state coming to an end, clinton's diplomatic push will likely be one of her most climactic acts in this business, in fact, very much near the end of her term. it could help define her legacy. we're joined by robin wright and steve clemons, washington editor-at-large for "the atlantic." great to have you both experts on. what i'm fascinated by has always been the relationship starting at the time he named her secretary of state, and she agreed to take it. this was a mutual agreement. she could have said no and stayed as a very important senator from new york. this relationship, is it a familiar one like a president and his -- like kennedy and dean rusk or truman and dean acheson? is it like that? we have a big president and a somewhat smaller cabinet minister or are they like equals? >> i think they're very much closer to equals, but this is not kissinger/nixon. hillary came in as the far more experienced person when it came to knowing the world. her husband had been pr
on this, on secession. you say 100,000 is nothing. go ahead. >> listen, the city of austin is trying to secede from the state of texas, right? >> that's the good move. >> there's people in all of these states we're talking about. no number that will scare me because either they ultimately secede or come to their senses and understand we're greater as a union. >> they're going nowhere. enjoy your turkey. nobody's going anywhere. >> the chairman ruled against secession. we know -- no secession. thank you for coming in. thank you, professor. james peterson. coming up, the right wing conspiracy machine gains speed. read all about it. president obama, catch this, this gets worse tonight, stole the election. wait until you hear that argument. the "sideshow" where that belongs is next . this "hardball." [ male announcer ] this december, remember -- you can stay in and like something... or you can get out there and actually like something. the lexus december to remember sales event is on. this is the pursuit of perfection. >>> welcome back to "hardball." time for the "sideshow," which is whe
. just bomb the hell out of the city. newt gingrich was the biggest threat, they destroyed him. here's a romney supporting ad destroying newt. >> know what makes barack obama happy? newt gingrich's baggage. newt has more baggage than the airlines. freddie mac helped cause the economic collapse but gingrich cashed in. freddie mack paid newt $30,000 an hour, $1.6 million. gingrich not only teamed up with nancy pelosi on global warming, but together, they cosponsored a bill that gave $60 million a year to a u.n. program supporting china's brutal one child policy. >> there's been discussion in my head and everywhere else about where ads work an election. no ad will change their mind. those ads out there -- >> primaries, they are deadly. and particularly in republican primaries and that ad in particular, for newt gingrich, buzz devastating because it hit -- it was the kitchen sink. it threw it all in there. >> what did it say about him? >> it said, you know, he's an insider, a washington pal. >> yeah. >> and he even pals around with nancy pelosi. isn't we just fire her? >> the loving look
favorite examples was a group out of new york city called the area code. if you are looking at lots of examples of creative solutions to problems, is one to look at. they did a game around money where communities in the south that have high rates of mortgage defaults, and low rates of savings, and they made up a currency called macon money. macon, georgia, so they had macon money. ads in dollar bills but all of them have been cut in half. they gave out all this money, but they were all half a dollar bill. the currency could be used in local stores in services like cash, but you had to find the other person with half of your bill, and they created a social gaming environment where you could meet up. if we met in a coffee shop we could use its air, and it created a social layer and physical community to transform the community and also bring positive of motions, that you have solved this problem and have success, and it is really interesting. basically, my answer is yes. there are so many crazy things you can thing to do with a game design that bring in positive emotions and physical
city, which got ravaged by 9/11. a plane had crashed right in their village. now the storm. steve was pursuing nancy pelosi because we did a story trying to find out how come members of congress can invest in wall street and not in stock, that is related to businesses they are looking at on capitol hill, without having to abide by the rules you and i do in terms of insider trading. that law got changed. the change happened right after. that was just this year. it is a really good question. it is part of what motivates people in the news business. you can have an impact. you feel a lot better about what you are doing when you are working on something important. i can tell you all so i worked in a lot of places in local news in my six years before i got to cbs news and i learned from places i did not agree with their philosophy. there is so much to learn. you find out what you do not want to be part of. "news, we do not want to go out there to make e news. we want to scare people." it is my favorite line. [laughter] i learned so much on that job and other jobs on stations with diffe
civil. you want to get married, you go down to city hall and you to get a license. if the property arrangement. the concept of marriage in this country is so overlaid, with religious dimensions of it. i think that my thoughts are, you know, they are not really about the current political movement in this country. the degree to which we are an extremely conservative religious sense of marriage and family -- it isn't just about the moynihan report. it isn't just about blacks and single mothers getting married. it was a moment that we have lost in the women's movement where you could, you know, have a life of chosen partners dividing property for the sake of very specific purposes of certain kind of benefits. but it was a little bit beside the point. if you want a religious endowment god's blessing, you know, you go and get married. i do see marriage. i see it as a kind of property transfer. i also think when you think of it as a civil union, it clarifies other things, like the lack of benefits we have generally. the lack of them in society. i am so concerned about this argument of pe
